I might be MIA

I don't even know what day it is. Every day since Friday has been a blur of several doctors and nurses and two different hospitals. Easter was ham eaten next to my mom's IV bag.

There's a long road ahead. The day after tomorrow she will have triple bypass surgery, followed by another week in the hospital, and 6-8 weeks of recovery at home. Luckily my dad just retired so he'll be home all the time, but I foresee me going to their house quite a bit to make meals and such. And I'll have to try not to let our house go to hell during all that.

I can't wait for it all to be over and to have my mom as good as new.

Less than a month ago at the botanical garden because the lilacs (her favorite) were in bloom...


  1. Sorry to hear that your mom has to have surgery, but please know that we're keeping you guys in our thoughts. <3

  2. Thank you Rachel! Everyone's thoughts and prayers mean so much!

  3. Your mom is blessed to have support from her family. Things will be fine with love and support. Cheers
